Nordoff Robbins South West & South Wales covers a wide geographical area from Cornwall in the west, over to south Hampshire and the Isle of Wight in the east, and up to South Wales, Worcestershire and Herefordshire in the north. It is nevertheless a currently ‘small’ NR region with a total of 5 music therapists working for NR!

nordoff robbins Chief Executive, Julie Whelan, writes on our support of Children's Mental Health Week:

We are delighted to support Children’s Mental Health Week, running this 5 – 11 February, to raise awareness of children and young people’s mental health and emotional wellbeing. At Nordoff Robbins everything we do is about people and music, and we are passionate about using our music therapy to help children and young people across the UK.

This Pancake Day, head to King’s Cross where you can take part in the very first ever Granary Square Brasserie Pancake Day race - All in aid of Nordoff Robbins!

You are invited to run around the pancake flipping course in Granary Square - and as an additional warming treat, hot chocolate will be served to race participants and spectators alike. 

It costs £10 to take part, with the proceeds from this going to support our incredible music therapy work. 

We are delighted to announce that, this year's recipient of the Nordoff Robbins Legends of Football Award will be former West Ham United, Chelsea and Manchester City midfielder Frank Lampard.

Frank's glittering career has seen three league titles, 609 top-flight appearances and 177 goals, and he is rightly recognised as one of the all-time great Premier League players.

He will join Sir Stanley Matthews, Sir Bobby Robson, Kenny Dalglish and last year's recipient Steven Gerrardin receiving one of football's greatest honours.

The ability of music to deeply transform and enrich people’s lives is widely known, but not always well understood.

The Research Team here at Nordoff Robbins works hard to build and develop that understanding, conducting research into the specific benefits and powerful impacts of music therapists who work everyday with the most vulnerable and isolated members of society, and also ensuring that our music therapy theory and best practice are based on the latest and best evidence about how music can affect people's lives.


We are a dynamic, ambitious and growing charity with around 90 employees and income in the region of £5.3m per annum.

The Nordoff Robbins Charity Cup is here!

We’d love you to join us on 16 May at Selhurst Park, the home of Crystal Palace FC, for an epic 6-a-side football tournament - all to raise money for Nordoff Robbins.

As the largest independent music therapy charity in the UK, we respond to today’s report on a study conducted by the International Longevity Centre thinktank and the Utley Foundation calling for more funding for music therapy in dementia care.
